Statement from LNP Deputy Leader Tim Mander in response to Labor’s Weatherill review of Queensland gas royalties

“Almost 12 months after the Palaszczuk Government blindsided the gas industry with a 25 per cent tax increase, there is still no certainty.

“Annastacia Palaszczuk has failed to listen to the resources sector, which has called for stable taxation during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Labor’s gas tax grab will cost jobs, including manufacturing jobs.

“Gas companies will pass on this tax to its customers – whether its households or manufacturing businesses. 

“In stark contrast to Labor continually moving the goal posts on Queensland’s resources sector, the LNP has committed to a 10-year royalty freeze to provide investment certainty.

“Only the LNP has a plan for a strong resources sector that delivers secure jobs for Queenslanders.”
